Based on two votes for extending the acronyms, I propose to change the
long description as follows:
DParser is a scannerless, generalized left-to-right, rightmost
deviation (GLR) parser generator based on the Tomita algorithm. It is
self-hosted and very easy to use. Grammars are written in a natural
style of extended Backus-Naur form (EBNF) and regular expressions and
support both speculative and final actions.
I'm not a native speaker, so please feel free to comment on spelling,
grammar, comma or other errors.
